Banana Flax Waffles (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

Print

I am obsessed with waffles. There, I said it, I LOVE WAFFLES! These banana flax waffles are one of my favorite recipes to make a big batch of on Saturday and Sunday and enjoy for brunch, then have extras to pop in the toaster oven for a super easy breakfast during the week. These also freeze well (wrap them tightly in ceran wrap) and can be popped in the toaster oven right from the freezer too. I like to let the banana do the sweetening, but if you want a sweeter waffle you could add a bit of maple syrup or honey to the batter or just drizzle it on top.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These waffles are worth waking up for! Each waffle contains only 10 g of net carbs with only 2 g of sugar so these are perfect for you if you eat paleo or prefer a less starchy breakfast. Bananas are a great way to start the day as they are full of potassium which will help keep you hydrated throughout the day!
